About this title:
Synopsis:
Chestnut Hill Local columnists Mike Todd, Janet Gilmore, Hugh Gilmore, and Jim Harris, (L-R), have not only survived in the troubled and struggling newspaper business, they have amassed a devoted following of fans who shower them with lavish presents like scrapple, bowling balls, and money from Nigerian bank accounts. Until recently, their columns were available only to the readers of the Local, but now you, too, can "LOL" as: Hugh warns of the "Enemies of Reading" Janet remembers old friends, old flames and ex-coworkers Mike deals with wrens, ferrets, and a pregnant wife in his house Jim dispenses dubious advice and rails against the system They each have their own style and shtick, but they share a love of language and an innate ability to find the humor in everyday life. Not since Ben Franklin dined alone at the Mermaid Inn has Chestnut Hill seen such a concentration of comedic talent. Here, from among their hundreds of articles, hand-picked by a rigorous process of "One potato, two potato," is a rollicking roundup of mirthful monologues for your gracious consideration.

About the Author:
HUGH GILMORE is a Philadelphia native who graduated from La Salle College. He has been an anthropologist, a high school English teacher, and the owner of a bookstore. His column, "Enemies of Reading," is a sophisticated rant against all the things that prevent us from reading more books. JIM HARRIS has lived his whole life in Northwest Philadelphia and has been writing since the age of 12. His column, "Life So Far" is a chronicle of events, real and imagined, in Jim's long and varied career, which has included stints as a rock musician and a professional sports mascot. He is also the author of the award-winning website, "Jimbob's Journal." He lives in Germantown with his wife Zipora. JANET GILMORE is a retired teacher who grew up in Philadelphia, went to Girls' High, Penn State and N.Y.U. Her Master's at NYU was in Media Ecology. Janet's column is called "Notes from the Belfry." She lives with her Husband Hugh in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia. MIKE TODD'S humor columns won first-place Keystone Press Awards in 2006, 2008 and 2009.
